John Fraser, Aged 3 - Taken at Inverbreakie Farm

This photo of the little "tough nut" sailor is one of me taken Aged 3 at my Granda and Granny's house (Sandy and Nellie Fraser) at Inverbreakie Farm in 1952. My mother and father were obviously preparing me for life in the Royal Navy, following in the footsteps of my father Sandy Fraser, his brother Tommy Fraser and sister Cathie Rose (nee Fraser), who all served in the Royal Navy. Although I did apply and was accepted for the Navy in 1964, I chickened-out at the last minute.

John, this picture should have been a clue that you would be destined to spend part of your working life at sea, albeit on the rigs and not ships. I was up in Invergordon a few weeks ago for my daughters wedding, the reception was in the pavillion at Strathpeffer and the memories of the nights we had there in the sixties came flooding back. Hope all well with you. Norley.
